The Mothers of Lovely Lane Blog Tour – Review and Giveaway

Last year I was on the blog tour for The Children of Lovely Lane by Nadine Dorries, so I’m excited to be back for the tour for The Mothers of Lovely Lane. On this tour I’m reviewing the book plus hosting a giveaway for a copy, which you will find the details for much further down.

Firstly here is a bit about The Mothers of Lovely Lane.

The Mothers of Lovely Lane

Book Description

Noleen Delaney is one of an army of night cleaners at St Angelus hospital in Liverpool. Since her husband was injured in the war, she has supported her five children. With help from her eldest, Bryan – a porter’s lad – the family just about gets by.

When Finn, her youngest, passes the eleven plus exam, Noleen feels faint. Allowing Finn to attend the grammar will stretch her purse too far.

When Bryan steps in to help, the results rock the St Angelus community. As the nurses of Lovely Lane near their final exams, Noleen will find herself tested, and her heart broken. Just how far can a mother’s love stretch?

My Review

I’m a huge Nadine Dorries fan since I first discovered the Lovely Lane series last year. The Mothers of Lovely Lane is the third book in the series, but they are read alone novels once you get stuck in and find everything there is to know about the wonderful characters.

The Lovely Lane series are books full of emotions, love, friendships and of course family. The Mothers of Lovely Lane is written well and you will be jetted back to the end of war era in Liverpool, where people are struggling to feed their families, struggling to survive. Nevertheless everyone gets together with huge amounts of community spirit and helps one another out. Of course that’s what friends are for isn’t it?

This book centres around Noleen and her family, a strong woman who will work herself to the bone to support her family after her husband’s injuries.

I have to say you are in for a treat with this one, charming, gutsy and full of raw emotions.

The Mothers of Lovely Lane deserves a 5 star rating from me.


Thanks to Suzanne Sangster & Head of Zeus for my copy.
